Subaru's first plug-in car comes in, and he's coming soon. The end of 2018 is already for us and the Subaru Crosstrek hybrid of 2019 is almost ready for primetime. This time it has a supplement that operates from the car's nomenclature, which belongs to the Pacific Ocean Hybrid. It also borrowed its PHEV technology from Toyota and now we have the California Air Resources Board (CARB) documents that suppose all of the Corrsstrek Hybrid's electric range.
According to the document (which is available in PDF format), CARB is called the GPS range of the Crosstrek Hybrid Urban Dynamometer management unit with a range of 25,650 miles. What is worth, along with Toyota Prius Prime, the Subaru shares Powertrain Tech has an EPA-rated 25-kilometer electric range and 21.9 miles. The document also includes an "equivalent" electric urban range of 26.273 miles and "equivalent" of all electrical power lines 27.381 miles. (Calculation of "equivalent" range in action when using PHEV with simultaneous use of electric and gas power.)
Crosstrek, which uses the Subaru's own 2.0-liter petrol engine, does not lead to reduction of electric power compared to Prius Prime's size, elevated ride height or all drive drive systems. The reasons are still unclear because we do not have many details about the crusstrict hybrid of 2018. Has a larger battery than the prime 8.8 kW. package? Will electric motor drive all four wheels, or will there be only one power axis under all electrical power? What other mitigating factors can be added to efficiency, and this is actually Subaru? Of course, we should see how the EPA's ultimate probable range shakes out until we draw our official comparisons.
We know much more when 2019 Crosstrek Hybrid receives official debut at the end of this year, plus a plus.
